“Squad” member Ilhan Omar has easily defeated her Republican challenger Lacy Johnson in Minnesota’s 5th District.
Omar garnered more than double the vote of Johnson in a heavily Democrat district.
After winning, Omar tweeted:
Fun fact: our GOP opponent spent $10mil to get 4% more than my 2018 republican opponent who spent $25k.
Misplaced hate has separated so many Republicans from their precious dollars.
We, by contrast, spent less than $5mil and got more votes than any other MN CD candidates.
She also wrote “our sisterhood is resilient” and tweeted a photo of all 4 “squad” members.
